Obama's Orwellian Inaugural Address

On Monday, President Barack Obama delivered a monumental address to the nation. It wasn't monumental in terms of rhetoric — in fact, it wasn't even memorable. It was monumental because it signaled for the first time just how grand Obama's ambitions for the left are. No longer is the left content to wage a war against Constitutional principles on behalf of a Marxist philosophical system. Now they will attempt to convince the American people that Constitutional principles dictate Marxism.
Obama opened his address by quoting the Declaration of Independence: "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." The Declaration of Independence sets forth a vision of limited government designed to avoid tyranny. But Obama, employing all the linguistic slight-of-hand in his multitudinous bag of tricks, had a plan to turn the Declaration inside out.
He began by rendering the document meaningless. As it turned out, "when times change, so must we." More importantly, when times change, so must our concept of liberty. Obama said, "our generation's task [is] to make these words, these rights, these values of life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness real for every American."
But what do those high-sounding phrases mean? Obama said they have no meaning: "Being true to our founding ... does not mean we all define liberty in exactly the same way or follow the same precise path to happiness. Progress does not compel us to settle centuries-long debates about the role of government for all time, but it does require us to act in our time." In other words, liberty has no meaning.CONTINUE READING
